Mike Vick’s Bankruptcy Case Officially Closed After Paying Back $17 Million
Mike Vick has done everything right since being released from prison.
Back in November, the former NFL quarterback paid back the final $1.5 million he owed to creditors after filing for bankruptcy in July 2008, which means he paid back $17.4 million of the $17.6 million he originally had to reimburse.
On Monday, he was officially out of the hole after a judge officially closed this chapter of his life.
“Vick owed approximately $17.6 MILLION to dozens of creditors.
But, Vick busted his ass to pay off his debts ever since he was reinstated with the Eagles in 2009. He reportedly made nearly $50 million in NFL salary in his 2nd stint in the league.
According to the docs, the outstanding debt was owed to Bank of America (related to one of his properties), BMW financial services, and his friendly neighborhood tax collector.
Vick made his final payment back in November — and now a judge has officially closed the case, granting Vick’s discharge and final decree. “
The former Atlanta Falcons QB officially retired from the league just before the Super Bowl between the Patriots and Falcons last year.
